Loving it as a traveling parent!!!
Our daughter is now a bit over 3 years old and pretty much used to me (her dad) reading at least one bed time story every night. In recent weeks I had to start traveling a lot for my job and our little
one started to be pretty mad at me for not being able to do the usual bed time routine. In the beginning I tried reading to her via FaceTime call, but that ended up being pretty clunky and I began searching for other apps that might offer a more shared and interactive experience. Voila, here comes Caribu!!! It is amazing how I am now able to do a video call while sharing the same screen and reading from one of the many digital books to her. Some of the books even offer a joint drawing function which my daughter loves (as long as I draw :D). Caribu has really become part of our bed time routine when I am traveling or sometime even when staying late in the office, so I would strictly recommend it to any parent that likes to increase communication quality and the depth of the personal connection with their kiddos. They will thank you for it! Noting beats being there in person, but this is a big step close than just an video or phone call. Big thumbs up for Caribu!!!
Great idea to keep in touch with the kids
The idea of this app is fantastic, however the execution is rather shaky. The app crashes and lags all the time, even if I’m just exploring the app by myself. Also sometimes the app does not sync correctly between both parties, my screen showed a completely different coloring page than what the other party had on their screen.
Lastly, when I finish a book/coloring page and back out of it, I notice I am brought back to the start page. I wish I was brought back to the exact position I was at before I clicked on the coloring page/book because I have to re-scroll to get to where I was. I found this especially irksome as I was exploring the app and was clicking on stories to ‘heart’ them and when backing out, I was brought back to the start page and instead of where I left off and had to keep re-scrolling through everything to get back to where I was. I hope the developers will be able to fix these hiccups to reach the potential I know this app has. Stay safe everyone!
Developer Response ,
Hi Girl who reviews, we sincerely appreciate this feedback, thank you for the review! We will take this into consideration. As for some of your technical issues, you can always feel free to email email@example.com and they can help you go through a number of fixes - often just restarting the app for both parties will fix everything!
I don’t believe I had previously signed up for this service. I downloaded the app yesterday, tried to sign up and got a message that my email is in use by another account. So I tried to sign in, but every time I click “Forgot password?,” the app closes. It sounds like a great app but I can’t try it out due to this issue. UPDATE: Account issue was resolved. I used the app for the first time tonight US to Costa Rica. I must say that it was a great success. I think we read eight books! My granddaughter was begging for more but my voice was going. I have a feeling that we will be using Caribu multiple times a week. Such a great way to say connected! Thank you.
Developer Response ,
Please reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org and we can help you get logged in. We identified an issue with the Forgot password button and have fixed it but the Apple Review team is taking a very long time to approve apps so we have been unable to update Caribu as fast as we usually do. Thank you for your patience during this time.
